Pad a number with zeros

I’m writing an autocounter in CRM 2011 because for some reason they haven’t included one!! I asked someone who did a free one in CRM 4 if they were upgrading it to CRM 2011 and he said I could have it for $500.

 

I read this article

it gives you loads of ways to do it and it would be useful if I was using doubles but I am just using plain old ints.  Here is the nice simple method of padding a number with zeros.

 

private string padNumber(int counter, int padlength)

{

string result = “”;

string fmt;

 

fmt = new String(‘0’, padlength);

result = counter.ToString(fmt);

return result;

 

}
